Natural disasters, disease outbreaks and conflict can hit at any time. The people affected are often the world’s poorest and most vulnerable and the health problems they experience post-disaster are long-lasting.
We train experienced UK doctors, nurses, paramedics, midwives and other health professionals to respond to emergencies around the world and work with local emergency medical teams to build resilient health systems for the future.
Since 1998, we have trained over 1100 UK clinicians and deployed medical professionals to 12 large scale natural and manmade disasters and delivered training to thousands of healthcare workers in local and regional medical teams across the globe.
We have a network of volunteers across the UK, many who have responded with us to emergencies overseas, who are passionate about our work and would be delighted to come and speak to your workplace, club or school about our history and approach for the future.
